Looks like something you could get an at Army/Navy surplus store.

You could probably also find something like it at H&M.

Its a neru, they came back briefly a few years ago, very cute if it is fitted with jeans. Sorry I can't help anymore than that.

Good call MJ, I didn't recognize it.

Google for Nehru jacket - careful of the spelling - and you will find a few variations.

Let us know how it works out!

I saw a jacket EXACTLY like that in TJ Maxx today. Except it was a women's jacket by Ralph Lauren (the Lauren line I believe).

Failing all else , you can buy an ordinary pointed collar SAFARI JACKET ( AS LONG AS THE COLLAR IS MADE UP OF TWO SECTIONS , AS WITH A GOOD TAILORED SHIRT ) , unpick the top part of the collar and have it machine sewn down round the new ' collarless ' collar . ' Hey Presto !!! ' , you have a mandarin collared ( Nehru collared ) safari jacket !!!

I have done this to Marks and Spencer's shirts to get that mandarin collared ' Arcitect ' look , a la Issey Miyake - the maker of the essential ' Grandad ' shirt !!!

i'm a guy so modifying it won't be exactly an option as I have no skills in the art of sewing, i'll keep looking for one though, i love the military type look and such.

I own this jacket from DaNang, this designer always uses a lot of surplus - safari inspired fabrics, and they are great quality... This one is for women of course, but It fits perfectly on me
